{You like to meet our 3 Feline Boys?}

Okay, having seen now most of our home|garden|gazebo in: {Our Home of almost 20 years} on the outside, let's now introduce some of our Felines.
We love them dearly and as you all know by now, they have plenty of space to roam free. 
They are, like both of us; in paradise!
This is Spooky
 Spooky is a very slender male with long legs.
 Spooky Panterino on the driveway.
Spooky hugging his true brother Bandido while together napping in their oak pet–bed in the garage.
Same hug from Spooky who's on the left.
Bandido, on top of my Toyota RAV4 2-door car. He loves my mini SUV as much as I do!
That car used to be very popular in France when it first came out. Pieter gave me this Cute Ute for my birthday. Got it about seven months later, as it had to be special ordered in Japan with a shift–stick... But I still love it!
This is Barty with {Anita Anggraeni our Foster Daughter}. She LOVED this little guy and he loved her. They were inseparable and Barty missed her for quite a while, when she went back to Indonesia.
Barty is three years older than his two step–brothers Spooky and Bandido. He came from the local Humane Society. Read about their sisters here: {Telling You the Tale of our 4 Feline Girls}
Barty next to my RAV4 and the Pet Beds in the garage.
Well this happens to be also their Breakfast & Supper area; next to their beds...
Are they not well behaved?! 
Together with their sisters (whom I introduce to you later).
They know that their Mami's motto is MANNERS DO COUNT as taught at: Mariette's Back to Basics! 
After supper they all love to groom in our driveway...

  1. OH Du hast wunderschöne Katzen, und wie brav sie alle beisammen leben. Ich selber hatte nie Tiere als Kind hatten meine Eltern eine Gaststätte, und als ich Kinder hatte waren sie Allergiker und durften keine Tiere.
    Ganz liebe Grüße

  2. Hallo Mariette,
    oh, wie süß! Spookey ist ein wunderschöner Kater, aber ich könnte ihn kaum von seinem Bruder Bandido unterscheiden. Wie wohlerzogen sie da in der Garage fressen, nein man muss schon sagen "speisen". Es sieht aus wie im Katzenrestaurant. Es muss wirklich ein Katzenparadies sein, wenn sie alle so relaxt dort leben. Aber das wundert mich kein bisschen. Du wirst es auch ihnen schön machen. Streichel sie alle mal von mir.
    Schöne Grüße, Johanna

  3. Dear Mariette!!!!

    They are gorgeous!!! So elegant!!! And the picture of them all having their supper put a smile to my face - it all looks terribly well organized and proper!!! Also love the row of beds!!!!! NO doubt they are having a wonderful life with you: pets in paradise!!!! VERY very cute!!!

    Have a lovely day and hope Pieter is doing fine!!!!!

    Lots of love


    p.s Am looking forward to meeting the girls!

  4. Liebe Mariette,

    so manierlich benimmt sich unser Kater leider gar nicht. Zwar liegt er oft sehr dekorativ und elegant irgendwo, aber wenn es um das Futter geht,ist er nur davon gesteuert und geht über Tische und Schränke. Auch boykottiert er seit Jahren erfolgreich Katzenkörbe und -betten und schläft lieber auf Menschenmöbeln ;)

    Liebe Grüße


  5. Oh Mariette,das ist ja ein Katzenparadies,wie schön alles da ist,und seine Ordnung hat,wie schafft man das mit so vielen Katzen.Schwarze Katzen sind sehr elegante Tiere,wunderschön.
    Liebe Grüße schicke ich dir.Edith.

  6. Hoi Mariette,

    Wat zijn jouw katten goed opgevoed. Ik ben onder de indruk! Ze zien er prachtig uit, als kleine panters. Wat moet het fijn zijn om deze lieve dieren om je heen te hebben. Wij hebben al een tijdje geen kat meer, maar ik mis haar nog steeds.

    Fijne dag!

    Lieve groet, Madelief

  7. HELL0,


  8. Liebe Mariette,wunderschöne haustiger habt ihr da...Das Bild mit allen an den Futternäpfen finde ich herrlich...

    Wünsche Dir einen gemütlichen Abend ( oh, sorry, bei Euch dauerts ja noch ) ,
    liebe Grüße,

  11. Hi Mariette :) I love that photo with the cats all lined up and eating from their own dishes!! How adorable is that :) My cats would never do that; they'd be eating from one to the other thinking that something better was in the other dish, LOL :) I'm looking forward to meeting your girls!!

    Warmest hugs, Brenda

  12. Hi Mariette, your cats are very smart''all dressed in their black suits, have pets sensitizes the human being, whether we enjoy and love so much. All together eating, it seems they really are well behaved! Blessings Rose Marie

  13. Dearest Mariette,

    Your kitties are so pretty. I can see they are happy, they have lots of love.

    P.S. Your garage is so clean... a good example for all of us who tend to fill the garange with junk... :-))


  14. Wow... six cat! You still have them all? We have 12 rabbits once, it makes me mad... even I don't need to do the work. Don't mind some baby dogs... :-)

    Your cat are so cute... love their beds... so organise. Have a lovely day Mariette. Mei
